The Springs Sporting Legends Charity Golf Day

Date: 17th April 2018
Author: Sarah Twist
Publisher: Darwin Escapes
Park: The Springs Golf Club
Entertainment & Events

Enjoy a fun day of golf with one of our fantastic sporting legends in aid of charity at The Springs Golf Club!

As one of the most popular golf clubs in Oxfordshire, The Springs is set within a 133 acres of a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with a beautifully built golf course to test and challenge all skill sets. And on the 7th June, you could be challenging your skill with a sporting legend in aid of Reach Out, a mentoring charity for children and young adults. There will also be a charity auction all in aid of Reach Out.

The teams will undertake a Texas Scramble over the 18 hole golf course, in teams of 4, with either 3 players and 1 legend for £1200, or 4 players (no legend) for £600 entry fee. The legends will be placed in a team via a live draw, which will featured a live Facebook event for you to see how it all unfolds and who is placed on what team!
